Alumni Weekend 2017: This Weekend!
A warm and sunny weekend of good times, catching up with old friends and celebrating your Drexel pride is coming up — thanks to Alumni Weekend, the biggest alumni celebration of the year.
More than 40 events will take place throughout this year’s Alumni Weekend, bringing together nearly 1,500 alumni and guests from class years spanning the 1950s to our soon-to-be alumni from the Class of 2017.
On Friday night, the Great Court will be transformed for the Young Alumni Beer Hall, where alumni of the last ten years will be treated to German beer hall inspired fare, a selection of craft beers, music provided by student DJs from WKDU and fun activities. For those who would prefer a more low-key cocktail reception, the alumni and student chefs from the Center for Hospitality and Sport Management have creatded food and beverage pairings for alumni and guests to sample while they mingle at Bites at the Bistro.
Alumni Weekend celebrations move off-campus on Saturday, as alumni and their families spend a day in the wild with more than 3,000 animals at Drexel Fest at the Philadelphia Zoo. Special receptions at the Logan Hotel will celebrate groups like Drexel couples, legacy families and the newest 40 Under 40 honorees. All are welcome to toast to the weekend amid the dinosaurs, butterflies and dioramas as the Academy of Natural Sciences plays host to Drexel After Dark.
